Thank you, Mr. Chair.
While I would have otherwise moved to adjourn to accommodate the interest of some members on this committee in attending the debate, which appears to be the most pressing and substantial thing going on here on the Hill, it was my understanding that there was some consensus around considering, certainly from the perspective of the critic of the official opposition, our thoughts around some of the pieces of the routine motions that obviously have to be changed from the last session, given the different circumstances.
Normally most of the pieces of routine motions are fairly straightforward, but at the very least there may be one or two parts, including allocation of time, speaking order, and membership at the subcommittee, that in the spirit of cooperation and collegiality the critic of the official opposition could make inputs to before we just submit our position and put the question for the majority side of this committee to enforce or abide by.
I haven't seen any suggestions from the critic. It was my understanding that we would have a further discussion about what they might be, but in the absence of a desire to have that discussion, I'm prepared to table proposals for routine motions that would set out a position from this side. I'm prepared to try to do that today, but I didn't think we were going to do that.
Maybe we could give the opposition an opportunity to respond. Otherwise, I would move to adjourn.
